Abstract:Ekoué, Leon, Blacky and Zorro live in Katanga, a fishermen's slum on the port of Lomé, in Togo. Always together, they call themselves the 'Hustlers'. They are in their forties, yet still trying to make it out of poverty - still trying to escape from their life of manual labour and odd jobs, petty theft, and time spent high on alcohol and drugs. The film tells of their daily struggle on the edge of survival. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
